I've been having pain and achiness in my left arm, left leg,

Customer Question
I've been having pain and...
I've been having pain and achiness in my left arm, left leg, and left side of my neck and back of my neck and back of my head too for a while. The area right behind my left ear is always sensitive and when I touch it, it vibrates. I was told that it was a few things going on. Sciatic on the leg and pinched nerve with the left shoulder. But since this morning, the left side of my face has been very sensitive. I have a sting on my face, behind my cheek bone, temple, chin and ear area.. all feel like needles being poked, stinging and like a light burning sensation. The back of my neck on the left is stiff too. Should I be concerned of a stroke or is it still nerve problems. Thank you in advance.
